Adorable! Covers the girls nicely! It's warm, so if you get hit easily, it's best worn in the evenings during the hot summer months. Luckily, it's open back so you can still feel the breeze!

Journey to Crochet
I first learned how to crochet from my husband shortly after we met. He taught me the traditional 'granny square' technique that his mother had taught him. I soon grew quite bored of only knowing one trick so I set out to teach myself the ropes. I used patterns and crochet block books to teach myself new stitches and terms. I have been happily crocheting my own creations and even writing a few of my own patterns for the past 6 years.
I discovered Etsy 6 years ago from a coworker of mine at the little used bookstore I was working at. I was intrigued at the idea of having a venue to sell my creations.
I set up my shop in 2009 with only a name. The name 'Luvbuzz' comes from the title of a song from my favorite band of all time, Nirvana. I changed the spelling from 'Love' to 'Luv' and made it all one word so that it would be my own.
For about 2 years my shop sat empty with nothing but a name and a blank page. In January of 2011 I finally began to add an inventory to my store. It started with a few simple beanies and has since grown to well over 100 items ranging from hats to purses to plush toys and beyond.
I create most items in my shop 'free form' or without a pattern. I like to use patterns to teach myself new techniques and then I create my own version sometimes using several techniques in one item. I offer a small selection of made to order items in which I have written my own patterns for duplication purposes. I enjoy being able to offer one of a kind, unique pieces.
I am quite often thinking two projects ahead of the one I am currently working on. I love to create custom items especially when I am asked to do something new and different that presents a bit of a challenge. I am constantly striving to learn and grow and improve on my craft.
I absolutely love having the opportunity to share my creations with the world!
Owner, Maker, Designer
I am a stay at home mom of two beautiful children, a son who is five, and a daughter who is three. I create all of my own patterns and designs and work mostly in free form. I love custom request and welcome the challenge of creating something new.
